Chiefs to part ways with Crennel, Pioli at season’s end

Dec 19, 2012 |
The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly parting ways with head coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli at season’s end.

According to Nick Wright of 610 Houston, a "more than reliable source" said the pair would not be back next year. Wright posted this info on his Twitter account, which was later picked up by other media sources.

Crennel has taken a lot of heat during Kansas City’s 2-12 season and has been rumored to be on the chopping block for a while. Crennel was applauded for the way he managed the team following the murder/suicide committed by LB Jovan Belcher, who took his own life in front of both Crennel and Pioli on Dec. 1.

The Chiefs are at home to the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday. Oddsmakers opened Kansas City as a 6-point home underdog. That has since been bet up as high as a touchdown.

The Chiefs have lost back-to-back games SU and ATS since an emotional win over the Carolina Panthers the day after Belcher’s death. They are just 5-9 ATS on the year.

Sunday’s total is set at 41.5 points.
